Does your pet love biking as much as you do?

The search is on the for the country’s best motorcycling pets and a new competition by Devitt’s Insurance will see one lucky winner selected as Britain’s Best Biking Buddy.

The competition is open to pets of any species until midnight on August 8 2018 and the winner will be chosen by popular vote – “in true ‘Pup Idol’ fashion”, as Devitt put it. Devitt has also announced that it will donate £500 to animal charities to help those in need.

It is hoped that the competition may help improve public perception of bikers, and Devitt launched the competition after a survey found concerning attitudes towards bikers among the general public. They found that 47% of road users think bikers are “aggressive and intimidating”, just 2% considers motorcyclists approachable and less than 1% thought motorcyclists are friendly.

So, do you think your pet is the future face of British biking? You can enter or vote here.

Because we like an excuse to put pictures of our pets online just as much as everyone else, show us your best biking pet photos on our Facebook page!
